#### Splitting 1 cell w/2 words into 2 separate cells

Hey everyone!

I have a listing of fantasy football players listed as (Firstname Lastname)
in one cell. How can I split them up, so the first name is in one cell, and
the last name in another? I need this so I can then sort by last name.

Thank you!

Gary

Gary,

Select the column, then use Data - Text to columns.  Specify a space as the
delimiter.  Ensure that the next column is currently empty first.

Moving CRM 1.x databases to new server
Hi all Can anyone point me to some good information on how to move CRM databases from one SQL 2000 server to another? I've been asked to do a feasibility assessment. Thanks Tony Afraid with 1.x it is not that easy. First, refer to the Implementation Guide and look at the Disaster Recovery section. It has the basic steps for "recovering" SQL to a new server. This is the same basic approach you need to follow. Make sure everything is working before droping the old DB's though as you may need to go back. Also, make sure you have good backups f everything (including yo...

Excel 2007: Sort by Cell Color
Hi, I have Excel 2007 with a fairly new computer and 2gb of RAM. When I try to sort a spreadsheet by cell color, the program locks up and I have to quit. There are 46000 records in the sheet - I understand this is a big ask for the computer but with 2gb of RAM it should be able to do it. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can make this work better? Thanks. I hadn't tried sorting by color (cell fill color) before (new XL2007 feature) so I created a 46000 row by 3 column 'database' with two fill colors in the first column. It sorted in less than 5 seconds on a les...

Why is my text hidden behind other cells?
I changed my text to be 90 degrees. When I type, the text only shows in that box. I cannot make it appear OVER the other cells. I need to learn how to 'bring it to front'... if that makes sense.

how do i change hours and minutes into a decimal number? #2
i am trying to turn total flight hrs into a decimal number( ie: 2045hrs 10mins into 2045.10). can anyone help me with a formula which may help in this? time is given HH:MM but i need it turned to HH.M.
